I came home from having my new hip on 11th June
--- a new woman!
The sun is shining, the garden aglow and I can enjoy it and look forward to pottering there soon.
Unfortunately our web connection was down and we only got back on line yesterday - really frustrating.
Well, at last I can thank everyone for all their good wishes and messages over the many months I have been grumpy and unwell! My family, so many lovely friends, and crafting, have kept my spirits up.
I'm walking well, improving each day, and now only have a couple of nasty blisters on my foot to get rid of
--- big smiles all round!

2010 Year of Bio-Diversity
Hearing about this on a TV programme from the Chelsea Flower Show inspired me to stitch my own garden of Bio Diversity!
I used three stitches from TAST 2007 re-visited, on linen coloured with fabric crayons,
23 Wheatear Stitch,
24 French Knots,
25 Long & Short stitch.
Many thanks all for such lovely comments about my previous 'Veldt' picture.
At last, after many painful months waiting for a hip replacement, delayed by other investigations and treatments,
tomorrow is hip-op day.
I'm sure it will be very successful and though I'll probably be having another later, and my spine could be better, I'll be a new woman in a few days time!
I'm looking forward to getting out and about and maybe a bit of gardening.
Stitching has kept me going for months - I'll probably do less as I widen my horizons!
